Tucker is my third Sheltie, my second sable male and my second sheltie from Dierenvriend's Kennel where his big brother Gryffon came from too. He was one of a litter of only two male puppies; the first litter for Dienrenvriend Bonnie Wee Mattie. Tucker's sire was Can Ch Fairfax As Good as It Gets. Tucker's registered name is Dierenvriend's Mattie's Tucker. Not my choice for the name although the breeder did use the call name I had chosen.

But Gryffon turned out to be a great big brother. Tucker could crawl all over him and even fall asleep on him. Gryffon, in fact, seemed always to be very interested in whatever Tucker was doing. They played tug of war and jousted with their heads, mouths snapping at each other. The only thing Gryffon didn't share was his tennis ball, poor Tucker never got to get the ball, Gryffon was such a ball hog. That's why to this day I say all Tucker learned to be is a cheerleader since when we were playing ball all Tucker got to do was run back and forth, barking.
